Abstract

On the scale of 100 000 years, glacially controlled eustatic fluctuations of sea-level are the dominant factors in generating coastal terraces. If each interglacial sea level returned to within a few meters of present level, flights of terraces represent the cumulative tectonic uplift during the oscillatory glacial cycles. On this time, scale a uniform average uplift rate gives good predictions of terrace ages
